"The Flying Goats of Mexico" by Ross Balcom

The Flying Goats of Mexico

"Praise the Goat" Ink on Paper
By J. Artemus Gordon
the flying goats
of Mexico

Luciferian
bearded marvels

the brujo's air force
his familiars

the flying goats
of Mexico

see their shadows
on the ground

fool, look up
in wonder

the flying goats
eat anything:

tin cans, peyote,
moonweed

to the moon they fly
at night

they were there
before NASA

and they have
more fun (moondust

makes them laugh
and sneeze)

the Devil dances
merry

on the moon

--Ross Balcom

Poet's Notes: Mexico is a land of magic and marvels. The flying goats are real. Look up in wonder.
